About This Course

This information-packed course is designed to provide you with all the skills and knowledge you need to carry out DSE assessments with confidence and competence.

Our course concentrates on the practical aspects of being a DSE assessor and includes guidance on carrying out your assessments virtually using Zoom or any other audio visual methods. We also look at the additonal challenges faced by people currently working from home.

Face to face training sessions use a mock-up workstation to give you the opportunity to practice carrying out a ‘real-life’ assessment. For virtual sessions, we use real life case studies to discuss and practise your assessing skills.

On completion of the training, all delegates will receive a Worksafe UK Certificate of Attendance plus CPD certification and CPD points, a DSE assessor manual and DSE documents. Furthermore, you will have unlimited access to our assessor helpline should any advice or guidance be needed at any time after the course.
